Rashad Jennings yet to pass concussion testing: Fantasy prospects rise for Montell Owens

Scott Cunningham

Rashad Jennings has yet to pass concussion testing, making it more than likely that Montell Owens will start Sunday for the Jacksonville Jaguars. We break down the fantasy implications.

Rashad Jennings has yet to pass concussion testing for the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to Mark Long of the Associated Press. Jennings suffered a concussion during this past Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Jennings is likely out for the Jags' Week 14 matchup against the New York Jets, as is Maurice Jones-Drew due to a foot injury. As a result, Montell Owens is expected to start at running back for the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact: The Jags' backfield has been an absolute mess this season, with injuries now relegating the team to it's No. 4 running back. That said, Owens could be a decent Flex option now that there appears to be no other competition for carries. He should earn plenty of targets in the passing game for PPR owners, as well.
